Tommy Wiseau takes on a Big Shark in The Room sequel trailer

Tommy Wiseau, the man behind arguably the (best) worst movie of all time, is back with a new feature. This time he transitions from shady future spouses to big sea creatures in the future Big Shark. Before the film’s release, the first trailer was unveiled. And as you’ve probably guessed, it’s sure to be a wild ride.

Big Shark is simple enough in its premise. As the title suggests, the film will feature a really big shark devastating New Orleans. The story is mainly about three firefighters – Georgie, Patrick and Tim – who will face said shark. Wiseau wrote, directed and starred as Patrick in the feature film. Georgie is played Markus Valerianowhile Tim is being played Isaiah La Borde.


The trailer itself doesn’t reveal much, although it raises a few questions. It starts with a bunch of guys getting ready to start a boxing match. After all, what would a Wiseau film be without some sport? Dramatic shots of the city are interspersed, building the tension for the shark’s arrival. Of course, the shark shows up and is looking for blood. But we’ll have to wait for the movie to find out exactly how it’s terrorizing the city.
